High Point, PA

Yamalube/Star Racing/Yamaha Continues its Championship Assault

After four rounds of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Series, Yamalube/Star Racing/Yamaha riders Jeremy Martin and Cooper Webb continue to occupy first and second places in the overall standings, a position they have enjoyed all season long. Jeremy Martin holds a commanding 36-point lead over third place. 

Conditions were questionable for the UPMC High Point National in Mt. Morris, Pennsylvania, as rain prior to the event created a muddy, challenging track, but conditions improved throughout the day and made for exciting racing.  Things started out well for Jeremy Martin as he won the Oakley Time Bomb award as fastest qualifier.  Jeremy backed up his qualifying win with a strong second place finish in moto one, followed by Cooper in third place.  After fighting his way back from a crash in moto two, Martin worked his way up to sixth place to finish second overall, making him the only rider in the 250 class to finish on the podium at every event.

The Yamalube/Star Racing/Yamaha Team would like to express its thanks to Keith McCarty and the crew at Yamaha Pro Racing for their continued technical assistance in putting an outstanding motorcycle on the track, as well as their support of the Star Racing amateur platform, which allows the development of outstanding young talent like Jeremy and Cooper.  Thanks as well to all our sponsors that provide necessary financial and technical support.  It is this commitment that will allow the Yamalube/Star Racing/Yamaha Team to achieve its goal of an AMA 250 National Motocross Championship, Yamaha’s first 250/Lites/125 championship since Jeff Emig’s championship in 1992.

He finished the first moto in a strong second position.

250 Moto 1: Jeremy Martin was second on the start and gained first position during the first lap. After making the pass for the lead, he showed that he was the fastest rider on the track, leading every lap of the race and taking his first moto win of the season in a dominant fashion with a 15 second lead.     

Cooper Webb on the other hand, started mid-pack and with great effort he passed all the up to second place. Even when he was challenged on the last lap, for the second place finish, he refused to back down resulting in the Yamalube/Star Racing/Yamaha’s taking the top two positions in the first moto.

Rookie, Anthony Rodriguez, had a good start and was riding strong in his first ever Pro Motocross race. He was in 5th position until he crashed. He got up and finished in 24th place.    

250 Moto 2: The second moto started with Jeremy Martin and Cooper Web upfront until the race was red- flagged because of a start pileup. Unfortunately Rodriguez was involved in the crash and did not restart. Martin once again got off to a great start and soon found himself upfront on the first lap. He dominated the race and got the second moto win with an impressive 21 second lead. Cooper Webb was top ten in the first lap of the restart. He charged his way through the pack up to second, passing previous MX champion Blake Bagget, giving Yamalube/Star Racing/Yamaha the top two positions for the second moto. The all-new 14 250F Yamaha was dominant in both motos, and had all the media scratching their heads wondering what happened to all the past champions and world champions that were in this very strong field.

Jeremy Martin got the overall win at Glen Helen with both moto wins. Cooper Webb came in second overall, finishing second in both motos.
